It’s the perfect moment to have a reason to be cheery and there’s nothing like a birthday to put a smile on people’s faces. Whether it’s a ‘big one’ or anything in between, we all enjoy a reason to get together with loved ones and celebrate a happy moment.
There are so many ways available to tell people you are thinking of them. These days most of these ways are online, which although makes things super quick and easy can lack that personal touch when it comes to saying Happy Birthday. There’s just nothing like getting a ‘proper’ card in the post. It expresses a lovely sentiment and shows you have been in someone's thoughts.
“A birth-date is a reminder to celebrate the life as well as to update the life.” ― Amit Kalantri
A new card now available on my website is ‘Birthday Party’. This original arty birthday card is created from an oil painting of a happy birthday tea party complete with French fancies, English madeleines, strawberries and cream. It’s the 3rd in a series that I’ve enjoyed so much painting, and am now happy to be able to share with you.
It’s wonderful to paint all the colours and textures associated with a birthday celebration and think of fun and interesting images such as The Mad Hatters Tea Party. Birthday parties are a fantastic occasion for all ages, this collection has brought back some lovely memories of creating birthday parties for my own children. Sculpting wobbly cakes covered in sweets and other ‘props’ plates of cupcakes and cheese straws, there was always something going on!
